Number of Times Seen – 1 (2 Sep 2020)
Brief Synopsis – Bill and Ted must try and make history to find a way to create world peace decades after being told that they would do so.
My Take on it – This is a film that has had lots of anticipation over the past year or so and having seen the previous two movies that were made about 30 years ago, I was curious to see what would happen here.
Unfortunately this film is a terrible edition to the series and in some ways drags down the entire saga due to the stupidity and silliness of this film.
The characters of Bill & Ted were fun when they were teens, but as middle aged adults, they don’t seem to work at all especially given the laughable wig that Keanu Reeves sports here.
This was probably a film that shouldn’t have been made because of the way that it ruins the entire series.
The way that the story unfolds actually makes the stories of the previous two films feel even more obsolete because nothing has really happened to these characters in the 30 years since the past films.
The film plays even more lightly with the ideas of death and time travel than the previous films and that also makes things seem even more strange and silly to watch unfold here which is quite a shame.
Bottom Line – Terrible sequel that drags down the entire series even more because of the silliness of it all. The characters of Bill and Ted don’t work as middle aged rockers and this was probably a film that shouldn’t have been made. The story in some ways makes the previous films obsolete because nothing has happened in the 30 years since those films were made. The film plays too lightly with the ideas of death and time travel and that also hurts things quite a bit.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – During filming in a neighborhood in Louisiana, the cast and crew were often greeted by local residents. One day, Keanu Reeves noticed a sign on a lawn that read “You’re breathtaking”. He stopped, got out of the car, went to the sign and autographed it. After finding out to whom the sign belonged, he went to the family and posed for a photo with them. (From IMDB)
Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
